Liaison Major: Psychology
I have been a student at the University of North Florida (UNF) since 2002 where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in American Sign Language and Deaf studies. I then graduated with a Master of Arts in General Psychology from this university in 2012.
While both an undergraduate and graduate student at UNF, I was active in multiple research labs focusing on cognitive and evolutionary psychology. I have multiple publications and professional conference presentations due to the research opportunities I was afforded while in the department. As a student I was a member of (and still work with) Psi Chi and Active Minds, two different student organizations that benefit the community and provide wonderful extra-curricular opportunities for students.
My undergraduate experience at the University of North Florida left me well suited for my graduate program, as it will for any student willing to take advantage of all the opportunities the psychology department has to offer. Though psychology is highly comprehensive, students can use their degree liberally. The multiple degrees and concentrations within our program allow students to fine tune their skills for the future they want, whether in workplace or in further schooling.
In addition to advising for the department, I am also part time faculty, teaching research methods. Feel free to approach me with any questions you may have about making the most of your time here in the department of psychology at the University of North Florida.
Your Academic Advisor,
Aaron Leedy, M.A. Psychology
